Opinion of bloggers (extracts) :

“This novel is, despite the subject, delicate, bright. (…) I also found all that I liked in the writing of Laure Manel.His words, his sentences are always as much carried by a sweetness, incredible tenderness … (…) The border is thin and it was easy, with such a subject, to fall into the pathos, but we never fall into this one “. (The Dory who reads)
“This is a huge favorite, as the author has, as usual, created realistic characters and stories, and I was literally caught up in this novel.” (The readings of Pau)
“It’s a reading that upset me, because it is filled with various emotions.It was a reading that fascinated me, because I found that the writing had increased in intensity to offer us a novel original and captivating, it is a reading that has reinforced me in the love of life, a reading that has confirmed that the human is capable of resilience when necessary and even when he believes he does not have the ability to do it, a real pleasure to read! ” (The readings of Lailai)
“I had a great time reading, the pages ran very fast … Laure has an addictive writing! She knows perfectly doser the emotions. (…) This last opus is a nugget!” (Louise’s readings)

Description : Encountering Terra Australis traces the parallel lives and voyages of the explorers Flinders and Baudin, as they travelled to Australia and explored the coastline of mainland Australia and Tasmania. Unusually, the book takes its lead from the voyages of Baudin, rather than Flinders, providing a rather different interpretation than those presently circulating. Furthermore the authors have worked using their own totally fresh translation of Baudin's journals, sourcing original accounts including material which has never before been available in English.

Description : In Metropolis on the Styx, David L. Pike considers how underground spaces and their many myths have organized ways of seeing, thinking about, and living in the modern city. Expanding on the cultural history of underground construction in his acclaimed previous book, Subterranean Cities, Pike details the emergence of a vertical city in the imagination of nineteenth-century Paris and London, a city overseen by hosts of devils and undermined by subterranean villains, a city whose ground level was replete with passages between above and below. Metropolis on the Styx brings together a rich variety of visual and written sources ranging from pulp mysteries and movie serials to the poetry of Charles Baudelaire and the novels of Marcel Proust, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Elinor Glyn to the broadsheets and ephemera of everyday urban life. From these materials, Pike conjures a working theory of modern underground space that explains why our notions about urban environments remain essentially nineteenth-century in character, even though cities themselves have since changed almost beyond recognition. Highly original in subject matter, methodology, and conclusions, Metropolis on the Styx synthesizes a number of critical approaches, periods of study, and disciplines in the analysis of a single category of space—the underground. Pike studies the built environments and the textual and visual ephemera (including little-known or unknown archival material) of Paris, London, and other cities in conjunction with canonical modern literature and art. This book integrates a rich visual component—photographs, movie stills, prints, engravings, paintings, cartoons, maps, and drawings of actual and imagined subterranean spaces—into the fabric of the argument.

Description : In 1925, earthquakes and a rising sea level left Lower Manhattan submerged under more than thirty feet of water, so that its residents began to call it the Drowning City. Those unwilling to abandon their homes created a new life on streets turned to canals and in buildings whose first three stories were underwater. Fifty years have passed since then, and the Drowning City is full of scavengers and water rats, poor people trying to eke out an existence, and those too proud or stubborn to be defeated by circumstance. Among them are fourteen-year-old Molly McHugh and her friend and employer, Felix Orlov. Once upon a time Orlov the Conjuror was a celebrated stage magician, but now he is an old man, a psychic medium, contacting the spirits of the departed for the grieving loved ones left behind. When a seance goes horribly wrong, Felix Orlov is abducted by strange men wearing gas masks and rubber suits, and Molly soon finds herself on the run. Her flight will lead her into the company of a mysterious man, and his stalwart sidekick, Joe Golem, whose own past is a mystery to him, but who walks his own dreams as a man of stone and clay, brought to life for the sole purpose of hunting witches. Joe Golem and the Drowning City is a new illustrated novel from Mike Mignola, the creator of Hellboy and Christopher Golden. (The paperback edition now includes the short story Joe Golem and the Copper Girl.)
